Students often ask me “Why do we need this, when will I ever use this?”
I reply “We have 4 core subjects for a reason. We need English so we can communicate effectively with reading and writing. We need Math; as it is the language of the universe and is involved in everything we use in our daily lives. We need History; because if we do not know what happened in the past, then we will be destined to repeat it in the future. We need Science; because everything we have in our daily lives was made by science and all of the previous core subjects came about due to science reasoning and the human thought process and our quest for knowledge to learn all that is learnable and to reach for our very existence and survival in the infinite unknown called The Universe. Knowledge is a powerful thing, it rules the world and allows us to become anything we choose, and literally to reach for the stars. An old NBC commercial ends with “The more you know, the further you go”. I truly believe this with all of my reasoning. How About You?
